TOM SHERMAN HAS STORY IN FORT DODGE PAPER ON EARLY IOWA FACTS The following article appeared in the Fort Dodge Independent last week, in connection with the early history of Port Dodge, and was written by T. C. Sherman, prominent Kossuth county resident and a pioneer citizen of north Iowa. (By T. C. Sherman) Algona, Iowa Fort Dodge Independent: Your Invitation to write a letter for your Letter Edition was received a few days ago. I was never a resident of Webster county, but know something of its hstory and traditions. My grandfather, Thomas White came to Webster county in 1854. locating first In ithe Lizard settlement near the present town of Clare, later moving to Fort Dodge, where he lived In one of the Port buildings on officers row now known as Williams street. I think ithe exact location was the former site of Tobln College, though of this I am not certain. My first visit to Fort Dodge was to my grandfathers, about the year 18T2.1 recall itliat the Haskcll spring and the stables of the North Western Stage Co. were located a.t the foot of the hill below the 'White home and that Col. Kb- er B. Byam lived in an adjacent house, and a Shetland xxmy owned by the Byams was a source of much interest to me. My father EM ward Sherman filed on a homestead in Humboldt county in November. 1859, and made actual settlement in the early spring of 1860. Fort Dodge was his post office and for many years -the last outpost of civ- llzatlon in northern Iowa, numbering In Its population many men of outstanding ability and character, the leadership acquired by your city in the pioneer days has continued to the present, within my memory your city has given the state a governor, a lieutenant governor, a congressman, two United States senators, a solicitor of the Treasury, a Director of the Mint, a Federal Judge and numerous other men of note and importance. Fort Dodge has sent forth many of her sons to sit in the high places of our people. Some come back ito the home town but many do not until after 'life's fitful fever" they return to rest in her soil, if you should run this verse in your Letter Edition, It might remand some of your boys to revisit the old home town. Yours very truly, T. C. SHERMAN.
